Days 1-3 – Kathmandu (7th arrive, 8th organise, 9th depart to start)
7th, 8th, 9th Nov. Welcome to Kathmandu! For the first time visitor, it will seem chaotic, dusty, noisy and intense. We’ll collect you from the airport and take you directly to the race hotel, and you can have your first experience of the city through the window of your vehicle. Of course, if you have visited Kathmandu before, welcome back!
The itinerary for the first three days is quite simple. On arrival, simply relax and do your own thing. The following day, there will be a group meeting where we will introduce each other and ourselves, we’ll check some details such as equipment, first aid kits and do a small medical check. We’ll also take some passport photos from you for the necessary permits.
You’ll have some time to visit sights of the city or purchase things you need. Some of the group may even head out for a short run in the Shivapuri National Park which comes highly recommended.
On Monday the 9th November we’ll take a bus to Arughat via Gorkha. Normally this journey takes 6 to 7 hours including a few stops along the way for tea and lunch.
